Match 29: Canada v Argentina 0-3 (0-2)

Argentina secured both a spot in the Hockey World League Final as well as a ticket for the 2016 Olympic Games. Thanks to goals from Gonzalo Peillat, Juan Gilardi and Ignacio Ortiz the Leones won 3-0 against Canada in Saturday’s first semi-final at the Argentina Hockey World League Semi-Final in Buenos Aires.

The noisy spectators in the sold-out CeNARD stadium saw a highly intensive match with both teams battling for the victory. Argentina were reduced to nine men after both Manuel Brunet and Facundo Calliano picked up yellow cards in the third and fourth minute of the game. Canada created some promising scoring opportunities during this timeframe but could not get past the outstanding Juan Vivaldi in Los Leones’ goal.

Playing at full strength again, Argentina forced a penalty corner which was fired home by dragflicker Gonzalo Peillat (14’) to give the home team the lead. This was the fifth penalty corner goal for the FIH 2014 Rising Star at this event. Juan Gilardi (23’) doubled the lead through a penalty stroke goal – much to the delight of the home crowd.

The Maple Leafs forced their first penalty corner with 5 minutes remaining in the third quarter. Team-captain Scott Tupper took the shot but Vivaldi saved again. Argentina added another goal through Ignacio Ortiz (42’) to extend the lead to 3-0 when he managed to put the ball through goalie Dave Carter’s legs.

Canada tried hard to get a consolation goal as the minutes ticket away but the Argentine defence stood firm with Vivaldi keeping a clean sheet.

Thoughts on the match

Scott Tupper (CAN)
“We wanted to win it because it would have guaranteed the Olympic spot. Unfortunately we were not able to score early in the game, we had some opportunities. It’s tough to play from behind, especially against a team having the home crowd.

Juan Gilardi (ARG)
“This is amazing. We wanted to win today and to play off in the final tomorrow, so we are really happy. The people come here to support us and so it was nice for them that we scored and won. We are also very happy to be qualified for the World League Final in India because this means we can play the best in the world.”
